Cigarette smell in the roomPosted Feb 4, 2014
Pros: The location and the large rooms (plus there's a Starbucks downstairs)
Cons: Fumigate that smoking room -- rip out the carpet and start again!!
Location: Near a fabulous restaurant -- Shanghai Slim's -- and French Concession neighborhood is cute and trendy. The subway from the airport is 3 blocks away.
I guess the staff thought they were doing me a favor, putting me in a 'bigger' corner room, but although the tell-tale signs that it was a smoking room were there, I thought I could overlook the stench. However, after a day of sightseeing, when I returned to the room, I could not. I slept at the foot of the bed with the windows wide open, and it being Lunar New Year, the fireworks going off all night prevented me from getting hardly any sleep. Plus there are gimmicky, annoying nightlights surrounding the perimeter of the bed and the top of the TV, and the alarm clock shines a red date on the ceiling! The jetted tub and separate kitchen area did not make up for these deficits. The next night I switched to a nonsmoking room -- no stench, hooray! But it was still a very dark room, the tub (again) was right in front of floor to ceiling windows with brown miniblinds that don't quite close, the nightlights and alarm clock had to be deactivated to get the room conducive to sleep, and in this room, the windows didn't open at all, so there was kind of a claustrophobic feeling when the air doesn't kick on for a while. Though trendy and near the upscale French Concession area, this hotel didn't work for me.

Great location, a bit oldPosted Jan 14, 2014 on Hotels.com
Overall quite good, but a bit old.

Cons: The hotel could have local area maps for walking - the French Concession is an interesting area, but the standard Shanghai maps are too big
Location: Fantastic location, nearby Xintiandi is worth a visit for eateries and shopping

Gem in the French ConnectionPosted Oct 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
Was delighted with this hotel adjacent to Fuxing Park. Excellent and friendly service, clean and comfortable rooms. Quiet location in this charming section of Shanghai and convenient to excellent restaurants and cafes.

Second time to stay at Pudi HotelPosted Oct 6, 2013
Pros: Spacious, comfortable, super-clean rooms. Lovely robes and towels.
Location: Nearby Xintiandi, shopping on Huaihai Rd, Fuxing Park. Subway stations 5-10min walk away.
We stayed at the Pudi Boutique Hotel for the second time and really enjoyed our stay once again. The location is great nearby Fuxing Park and much of the french concession; walking distance to Xintiandi and subway stations. We visited Shanghai as a group of 4, and stayed in two rooms. The rooms were lovely and spacious, very comfortable bed and pillows, lovely window lounge. The bathroom is also large with a big bathtub. Luxurious towels and robes. The second room was upgraded to a bigger rooms in order for the rooms to be closer together, for free, which was lovely. It had a huge bathroom! Rooftop bar has nice views.

Great relaxing hotelPosted Oct 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
A group (2 couples and 2 singles) of us stayed here for a friend's wedding and it was the perfect bolt hole. We had a few celebratory nights out and the hotel was the perfect sanctuary for the morning after. The concierge were also great at making food recommendations for us. The hotel was well located, a few mins walk to the main shopping street and about 5-10mons in a (v cheap) cab to the bund. The shower and bathtub were also a highlight!

Good value for moneyPosted Oct 5, 2013 on Hotels.com
Surprisingly large bedroom and bathroom, very well equipped, more than we were expecting for the price. Good location in the French concession, and the guys at reception were very helpful with booking restaurants, writing out instructions for the taxi drivers in Chinese etc. Only one niggle - the site and info in the room say there is a business center, but there wasn't.

Superb suitesPosted Oct 4, 2013
Pros: Lovely big suites, very comfy bed, everything you need in your room.
Cons: Maintain the jacuzzi.
Location: Walk in Fuxing Park. Exclusive shopping in Huahai Rd and the large shopping village nearby. Some great little shops in the back streets.
The Pudi is a lovely, small hotel with divine suites. Unfortunately, the jacuzzi was out of order while we were there, otherwise I would hav egocentric the hotel a perfect score. I did not eat in, there are many good cheap local eataries close by. The staff are helpful, but could do with further knowledge. We were told the post office was closed on Saturday, when in fact it is open all weekend. When asked how much we should expect to pay for a taxi to the Maglev, the staff member said 180 RMB. We travelled there twice for less than 50 RMB each time. Note - beware of taxi scammers charging 200-300 at Longyang Rd station. Look for the legal taxis without the touts. While work is going on at the station, they are situated at the end of the station, not the side.

Nice placePosted Jul 20, 2013 on Hotels.com
I had 2 nights in Shanghai (first time) and wanted a hotel that was more local than the usual multinational chains. This place was a good choice. I booked early and had a decent discount; the staff were helpful and had adequate English for my needs. The breakfast (if not included) is overpriced but the staff will charge you less if you pay cash. Location seems good. Nicely furnished, seems pretty new. Shanghai in mid-July was 37 degrees C, though – unpleasantly hot.

Brilliant room and good location near parkPosted Jul 10, 2013
If you spend lots of time enjoying or working in room this is great option. Location is in relatively quiet environment with park and trees. Not close to subway system. I really liked to hotel but the lobby (non existing) and restaurant are not impressive.
